About Ken Martin

My Background in the Door & Gate Industry

I have been employed in the Door & Gate industry for over 50 years working in nearly every position the industry offers. Throughout my career, I have been a manufacturer, installation & maintenance contractor and while not a Professional Engineer, I was elected president of the National Association of Garage Door Manufacturers and served for 2 years. Additionally, I was appointed to the industry technical committee as chairman – a committee that includes industry engineers, designers and manufacturers.

I am currently a voting member of the Underwriter’s Laboratories Standards Technical Panel for garage door and gate safety standards. I am a licensed garage door and gate contractor in several states, and my businesses are involved with installation, maintenance, and repair of all types of doors and gates.

I am accredited in the door and gate industry and I supervise and train my employees who have received door and gate certifications.

An Expert in Industry Regulations

The Door and Gate industry has become highly regulated in recent decades due to the high volume of injuries and deaths that have occurred. I am qualified and have many years of experience testifying and rendering opinions about garage doors of all types, including the type of Door at this property. My qualifications and experience are summarized in more detail in my CV which can be accessed here or by clicking the link at the top of every page.


I have assisted in over 100 cases, both civil and criminal, plaintiff and defense.

I have been a consultant in cases of all sizes, from the highest profile cases in our industry to the smallest finger injury cases that involved lawsuits. I was the lead expert in an Indiana case that awarded $23 Million in damages.
